    Re: Cake stand

    finally got around to finishing it... only a week in advance!





    Still needs a rub up with brasso or something to get rid of the pinkish tinge and smooth the surface up ever so slightly.

    Awesome, totally awesome. Just like I said, a piece that can be passed down generation to generation.

    Re: Cake stand

    Have you tried putting anything similar to similar cake weight on it yet? Or even just pushing down on the top tier? Might be a good idea to test it out prior to polishing...

    Re: Cake stand

    I was leaning on it with the DA to sand out the scratches, so yes, I'm confident enough of the strength

    Funny stuff, copper. I annealed one of the helical spars to get a slight bend straightened out. It was then soft as butter. Flexed it a bit one way and then the other, and most of that annealed state vanished in two bends. In its work hardened state, it's pretty rigid.

    When you get a chance, please share a photo of your cake stand with your wedding cake on it. I'm sure everyone here would love to see it.

    Re: Cake stand

    Thanks guys Had a lovely week off, had a few nights away, and got settled into our home together, already have a honey-do list lol

    I unfortunately didn't get many pics of the stand in action! We had a second cake to go on the middle tier, but it needed to be chilled until last minute, so most of the pics people took were of the single cake at the base and flowers in middle.
    No matter, we still plan to have a big reception at the end of the year and have the 3 cakes as planned, will get better pics then. It went down well, everyone seemed to be impressed, but they were all just our close friends mind!

    This is a BBQ that was fabricated where I work for one of my colleague's parents, I borrowed it, it was an absolute weapon, cooking stuff through with the grille raised all the way up!

    Re: Cake stand

    Congratulations, best wishes. I think that cake stand will look even better with more cake on it, but weddings, funerals, and graduations are a little different for now.
    Now you have to keep it nice until the big party. Is it coated or bare copper ?

    I like the grill, its great that you could borrow it (don't have to worry about where to store it). The big handwheel and ash doors/vent handles make it look professional.
    Its nice to cook over charcoal, but most of the time I use the gas grill. Just a convenience thing.

    Re: Cake stand

    Even better than I envisioned Munkul. All nice and shiny for the big day. It looks just as beautiful with one tier of your cake and the flowers as it will with all three tiers of cake.

    Since I'm a female, I have to tell you I see overkill wedding dresses that "wear" the bride as opposed to the bride wearing the wedding dress so I really love the simple lace bodice of her dress with only a few shimmers combined with the lower tulle. Exceptionally tasteful in my humble opinion.

    Best wishes to the two of you throughout your life together.

    My limited experience with hard working stainless, mirrors your experience with copper.

    Work hardening is fascinating stuff. It's totally new to me. Never worked with anything subject to work hardening until I had to bend stainless tubing.

    What I wonder............is work hardening as strong as heat treating. I'm thinking it isn't.....something makes me feel that it's on the brittle side, with no real proof.

    THRILLED THAT Y'ALL HAD A NICE WEDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! You're tying the knot in difficult times.......sometimes that makes the bond stronger.

    I seriously hope y'all didn't do any grilled chicken on the DAY. Name:  mutley.gif

    Re: Cake stand

    I'm assuming those ain't bangers on the grill.........somethin' more like brats or equivalent supper fare. But, I am not sure what you guys eat on a regular basis, or based on time of day. Looks good either way............long as the dood/doodette cooked 'em right.

    Re: Cake stand

    Thanks again, guys

    Equilibrium - obviously I wasn't allowed to see my wife's dress before the wedding, but when I did see her walk towards me - I was not disappointed Very "princessey" but not over the top... it was "her" through and through, I'm a lucky lucky man.


    Sam - those sausage loops on the grille - it's Cumberland sausage, it's a speciality in my county, it has a texture and spice unlike any other type of sausage, and we kinda like it had a close family friend run the BBQ and he di very, very well, I got him and his wife a thankyou gift afterwards because they did so well for us all.

    Given that we had to do it all ourselves, since no caterers would do anything in current circumstances... the barn was well decorated, loads of people helped out, and it makes me thankful I have such good friends and family.

    Just had the closest 30 people to us, really, and TBH I was glad of it, nicer than a huge wedding with hundreds
